FUN FACTS:
“Don’t Dream It’s Over,” the group’s most internationally successful single, was used prominently in the made-for-TV movie “The Stand,” based on Stephen King’s The Stand and it is now used in the advertisement for New Zealand Tourism Board in its “100% Pure New Zealand” worldwide promotion.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
For Australians and New Zealanders, the Crowded House reunion tour is something like a Beatles reunion or at least a Police reunion. Reviews for their “comeback” shows in the States have been favorable, if not comparable to running into a friend you haven’t seen for years - exhilarating and slightly awkward. Ultimately, their recent shows have been described as encounters to cherish, with the broad smiles shared among the musicians onstage matched by those of the slightly older audience.

MP3s:
“Don’t Dream It’s Over”
“Don’t Stop Now”
